Well, I thought I might have found a score with another Strat I asked about a few days ago, but I really hit the jackpot with this one. I had never heard of these before, and the seller clearly didn't know what he had. He just listed it as a dark blue Fender Strat for $350. I had to do some googling on Fender Strats with bound necks and wide-ranging humbuckers. Found out what it was, and picked it up immediately. Designed by a Fender Custom Shop master builder, and mostly American parts, but assembled in Mexico. Nice specs: Alder body 60s C shaped neck with 9.5" radius (pretty chunky) and 22 frets Bound neck Painted headstock Wide-ranging special humbuckers 5-way super switch (bridge full, bridge single, both full, neck single, neck full) CTS pots Two point trem, full size block, bent steel saddles Custom Shop Designed engraved neck plate Fender F stamped tuners One interesting thing is the neck. It's 22 frets, but doesn't have an overhang (much like the Modern Player Teles). So the neck pocket is a tad longer than normal. I swapped out the stock cream knobs, switch tip, and trem tip for black. Looks much sexier this way. I just wish the Stratocaster logo on the neck was done in white so you could see it. It looks incomplete as is.
